シャルリー・エブドの風刺画で不覚にも連想したもの:Charlie Hebdo cartoons remind me of..

Winston Churchill and Theodore Roosevelt on Japanese WW2 poster.
It says, "those who publicize 'peace' and justice are, in fact, kichikuyaju,"
implying "kichiku beiei (demon-beast Americans and Englishmen)."

Jap on US WW2 poster, making sure you know who your enemies are.
